UNCOMMON PET TALES, a collection of short stories that run the gamut from romance to ghost stories to mysteries to fantasy to -- tales that you just can't categorize. They're all short, so that you can read several of them in a single sitting. That's the aim of the "Read on the Run" series, and I found this collection to be quite enjoyable.
What a great collection of animal- centred stories! Each one different, but all offering some sort of insight to the bond between people and their pets. A great book for anyone who has a pet, or wished they had.
I loved this book. I'm not usually a short story fan, but I was intrigued by the theme and found nothing to disappoint - in fact I'm now a convert to the genre. The ideas are brilliant, the dialogue sparkling, the pace swift. They're short, but substantial. And they have that edge; that unsettling sense that life is not quite as we thought it was.

Or how about ghost pets who act as matchmakers?
Or a dog who lives like a human, taking care of the apartment while you’re away?
Or have you ever thought about taking revenge on someone who harmed your pet?
Or did you ever want a mythical creature as a present when you were a child?
These are just some of the ideas fleshed out in UNCOMMON PET TALES, a collection of short stories that run the gamut from romance to ghost stories to mysteries to fantasy to -- tales that you just can’t categorize. They’re all short, so that you can read several of them in a single sitting. That’s the aim of the “Read on the Run” series, and I found this collection to be quite enjoyable, which is saying a lot since, in all honesty, I’m not really a pet fan. My favorites were “A Dog Called Alfred,” “The Locket,” and “Adopting Cathy,” but each story had something to offer.
